Sean Kingston

Sued By Landlord --

You Wrecked My Mansion!

Sean Kingston
is the tenant from hell -- at least according to a Miami landlord, who claims the singer rented her giant $25,000-a-month mansion last year, trashed the place, and skipped out on a $70,000 bill.

As we reported, Sean fled Miami last fall because of nightmares stemming from his horrific jet ski crash months prior -- Sean couldn't stand the constant sound of the ocean, so he moved to Hollywood.

But according to a new lawsuit, filed in Miami, Sean and his mother -- who was also living in the house -- left behind a trail of destruction ... broken landscaping lights, sprinkler heads, holes in the wall, and broken railing around the waterfront dock.

The landlord claims Sean and his mother caused $21,397 in damages to the property -- but that's just the tip of the iceberg ... because when they suddenly left the house in October, they allegedly breached the rental agreement by taking off before the lease was up.

Per the rental agreement, the landlord claims Sean owes two months rent -- $50,000 to be exact -- for ditching early ... on top of the property damages ... PLUS $2,400 in past due rent.

All told, the landlord wants $73,816.85. Calls to Kingston's reps were not returned.

One hit wonder rents a mansion and skips---he thought he was in the hood and Section 8 was going to cover the damages... give the dude a break, He didn't know. All things being equal, broken landscaping lights, sprinkler heads, holes in the wall, and broken railing around the waterfront dock does not add up to $21,397... I'm guessing the landlord is a foreigner. Those folks come here and don't waste any time ripping folks off. Welcome to America. But then we have Obama who has illegal relatives in the country...

Brilliant, creative new way to skip out on a lease:


"Sound of the ocean."


Sean should win based on this alone.

Hiya. Quick note: the correct spelling is, 'All tolled', as in the toll for the charges, not 'all told' as in a story.

Translation: He's broke and skipped out on rent. Him and his family are trash for demoing the place.

Why the hell does this jackoff need to move over here? What does Hollywood have for him? He has no damn talent! He's a result of the teeny bopper explosion nothing else.
